Early Morning Mobile Home Fire in San Leandro Claims the Lives of Two Adults, Fire Investigation is Ongoing

On Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 5:27AM, Alameda County firefighters responded to a fire at 285 Santa Susana Street in San Leandro at the Mission Bay Mobile Home Community.

Firefighters arrived within five minutes to find a double-wide mobile home fully engulfed in flames.

During a search of the residence, firefighters located two deceased adults, a female and male, in the rear of the home. The 1-alarm fire was extinguished within 15 minutes of firefighters arriving at the scene and was contained to the mobile home, with some minor exterior damage to neighboring mobile homes.

The fire investigation, led by the Alameda County Fire Department (ACFD) in collaboration with the San Leandro Police Department, is ongoing. For fatal fire investigations it is standard practice for ACFD Fire Investigators to work closely with the local law enforcement agency to determine the cause and origin of the fire.

The Alameda County Fire Investigation Task Force was also requested to assist with the fire investigation. Task Force representatives from the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Alameda County Sheriff’s Office (UAV Team), and the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety responded to help with the fire investigation.

There were no additional reports of injuries to firefighters, community members, pets or public safety personnel.

The City of San Leandro Building Department, PG&E, Paramedics Plus and the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Coroner’s Bureau also responded to assist with components of the overall fire response.
